Deathball v1.8.5 - New Gamemode! (Updated 5/10/20)

Deathball is a new game mode based off of Bombing Run from Unreal Tournament 2004, somewhat similar to One-Flag CTF. A ball spawns in the middle of the map, and a team has to grab it and jump into a pit inside the enemy base with it to score (you can't shoot the ball in, you have to jump in). After a few seconds, the ball respawns. While carrying the ball, the player can only use one weapon; one that throws the ball, so he can pass to another teammate. If the ball is out of play for some period of time, it respawns in the center.


Recommended Flags:

Code: Select all

DMFlags: 5264388
DMFlags2: 4195840
ZADMFlags: 34848
ZACompatFlags: 131688
Note: If these flags are not used some maps may not play properly and there may be bugs.

Released a new patch! This will fix the bug where the countdown stops if the player that scored has spectated/disconnected. Map12 also has minor edits.

You should make throwing the ball at enemy's base valid.

Updated to version 1.61. This release includes the changes from patch1 + more bug fixes and map tweaks. Hopefully all the bugs are worked out now and no more arise.

Updated to 1.7! Sadly I can't do what I want with Deathball until zandro catches up with ZDoom 2.5.0. This this should be fine for now.

Edit: Released a small 1.9kb patch to fix a stupid typo I made in the ACS last minute.

Would anyone be interested in an updated version of Deathball? I've had a half finished update (Version 2.0) on my drive for like two years now. I'm not sure if there is enough interest in competitive mods for me to actually finish and release it though. The updated version changes score pits to actual goals and you can score by shooting it in (though for less points). It also has a bunch of map tweaks and makes the ball easier to pass.

Christ, I've been wanting an updated Deathball for 43867484 years

A bit problem with it is some of the maps IMO, it could use some tidying up in that area.

Do you mean enough public interest in "competitive" mods? I think there is plenty of interest. Don't say "I have" or " I have had this update for x amount of time but I'm only going to release it if I get enough attention." If you're so angsty that people haven't played much deathball, maybe the question you should be asking is "what makes this mod unattractive to play" or "why is my mod so bad that people don't play it except once for fnf every 5 years?"
I mean I see where she's coming from, but I think the easiest thing to do would be to release it, get a decently-populated server going and see what happens. I could go for some Deathball right now.

I had a chance to play only one time, quite a funny thing. But we need enough players for the game.
And I would like that the gameplay will be similar to the mix of Push and Deathball.
Something like that.

Public betas and testing are always a good way to find out what's wrong and fix it! I really like deathball and I hope to see a new version.
